Default Really Need Some Help

I have been scouring different sites looking for a plane for my DLE20. I have found some, the Hangar 9 Sbach, 70" Revolver, and the Super Sportster, but the 20 is at the bottom end of the recommended motor size. Since I already have the motor from another plane, it's not a matter of just moving up in size. Do any of you have a recommendation that I might consider? I would appreciate your input.

Many of the ESM warbirds will take a DLE20, the H-9 Tcraft will take the DLE20, I'm sure there are many others. Check out Valley View RC, they have several.

Maybe you should consider this an opportunity to design your own plane.

Barry, I don't think I have looked at Valley View, Will do so.

Grotto ... As luck would have it, I am allergic to balsa dust, so I have scratch built only 2.

Took a look at Valley RC, did not find ESM, so I looked it up. Looks like they are listing 26cc as the low end on their birds. Still looking though... The Hangar 9 Carbon Cub has become a definite possibility. Will keep up my search.

Sig Four Star 120
Top Flite 60 size warbirds fly very well with the DLE20

Thanks Hemi, I will look at the Four Star 120...didn't know it was still being made. Also found several versions of the 22% Extra on Chief Aircraft, and they are made for the 20cc size. The maker is Pilot which I really know nothing about as far as quality. I can also consider Phoenix or Seagull, but I have never held them very high in quality as I remember. Of course, I am going back to my 72 mhz days.

Default Found The One

After a lot of research and back and forth on what type of plane, I decided on the Top Flite Cessna 182. Right sized for the DLE20, well detailed, with nav, and landing lights, full cockpit and a great look. Just got it yesterday and today will be the parts inspection to make sure all of them made it to me undamaged. Looking forward to the build and to detailing the cockpit ... I have an AeroWorks Cessna 195 in the box and will use what I learn about the detail work on the Cessna to apply to the 195. Thanks to all how provided suggestions.
